College Student Faces Child Porn Charges

A Kentucky college student, accused of hacking into his school's computer system, is facing new charges.

23-year-old Sung Kook Kim is back in the Whitley County Jail, this time on child pornography charges.

Police say Kim intercepted messages and gained access to personal information about other students at the University of the Cumberlands in Whitley County.

He bonded out of the jail Wednesday on his original identity theft charges but was almost immediately arrested again.

The Attorney General's Cyber Crime Units say they found numerous items of child pornography on his computer. He's being held now on a $100,000 cash bond.
